Glasgow Airport denies drop-off vehicle charge rumours

Glasgow Airport has denied rumours that it is intending to charge a fee for vehicles that drop off passengers rather than using airport parking.

This week, the Scotsman suggested that Scotland’s largest airport would be charging £1 for the use of its drop-off zone.

However a spokesperson for the airport rejected the claim, adding that there are no plans to introduce any fees for vehicles dropping passengers off in the future.

"We have, just last week, opened a new purpose-built drop-off soon near the terminal which is free to use for private vehicles and taxis," the representative said.

"For us, it is about trying to provide a much better product for people arriving at the airport."

The airport, which sees 7.5 million visitors a year, is currently undertaking £2 million worth of work to make it safer and easier for passengers to access it.

On June 8th, the new, purpose-built drop-off zone was opened close to the main terminal.

It is situated a short walk from international arrivals and check-in and will replace the temporary drop-off zone that has been in use since 2007.
